For many people, this is the longest awaited event. January and February, on Saturdays, dress up as an invitation to enjoy the most typical Carnival in Entre Ríos.
It is essential to have experienced Carnival at Concepción del Uruguay
in order to fully understand it. This tourist attraction summons thousands of people not only from the city proper
or neighboring districts in the province
but also from all towns in Argentina year after year. Unidos do Bahía
are some of the groups and comparsas
that are already a classic in Concepción del Uruguay. However, this carnival also saves some space for humor, welcoming groups such as Fantasía, Mascaradas
and Mundo de Payasos
, to name some of the many that are presented every year.
In addition to feathers and sequins, dancing and choreographies, thousands and thousands of foam tubes and water balloons fascinate children and renovate love for Carnival every season. This ancient celebration is considered by many as the best part of summer.
